UZH fosters the development of university medicine in Zurich. The University assumes a major role in the strategic development of medical research and teaching, and is responsible for the coordination of goals and processes among all partners in the area.
UZH advances its strategic collaboration with the University hospitals and ETH Zurich. The University adjusts its executive structures according to the demands placed on competitive university medicine and, within its capacity, actively works to improve coordination in university medicine.
Funds for research and teaching are distributed trans- parently and according to performance. UZH implements the Faculty of Medicine’s model for allocating funds and calls for a detailed annual report on the allocation of funds for research and teaching from the University hospitals.
